Welcome to Birch Class


If You Go Down to the Woods Today...

This term have been learning all about woodlands. We have been on a visit to Sherwood Forest and we have been having walks to Greenhills nature area to look at how the woodland changes through the seasons. 


This half term, we are focusing on traditional tales. From 'The Elves and the Shoemaker' to 'Jack and the Beanstalk', we will be reading, retelling and writing lots of stories. This fits in well with our whole school visit to the pantomime later this term, which is Jack and the Beanstalk. (Oh yes is it!)


We will also be preparing for Christmas. We will learn about the Nativity story and also make lots of lovely crafts for our school fayre. In addition, we will be practising for our own Nativity, Miracle in Town.


Keep looking back at our page to see photos of all of the exciting activities we will be doing.

Sherwood Forest

We went to visit Sherwood Forest. We learnt about animal habitats and then we made our own habitat for a soft toy. Then we had to think about what a badger would like for breakfast and find the items in the woodland. After our picnic lunch (teddies included) we walked through the forest to see Major Oak, Robin Hood's tree.

Making Biscuit Bears

We have visited the Greenhills Nature Area in Underwood. We identified leaves. We will be visiting again in Autumn to see how the area changes throughout the seasons.
